Only Frank Lloyd Wright home in Oregon
Oct 2021
If you're a Frank Lloyd Wright aficionado, it is well worth your time to visit the Gordon House. There are some "standard" Wright features along with some surprises. The docent who gave my tour was well-informed and personable.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Gordon House

I am a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and his work, so it was great to be able to see one of his houses here in Oregon. The house was great to see, and the staff giving the tours were very informative and helpful

Great tour! Lots of information! So fun to be able to walk around inside the house. Tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. Added bonus was the care they took regarding Covid-19 concerns.

Was just OK, not my cup of tea but took the effort to see the architecture. I wouldn't want to visit it again.

Unique Frank Lloyd Wright house
Jul 2020 • Couples
The Gordon House was relocated to the grounds of the Oregon Garden several years ago. It is an example of Usonian architecture. During this time of Covid, you call to schedule a private tour, then purchase a voucher online. We had a private tour which lasted about 50 minutes. Elizabeth, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about FLW and this house, and we learned some new facts that we had not previously learned. The house is beautiful and unique, and you get to see everything but the small basement. I highly recommend, especially if you’re a fan of FLW and/or architecture.

Enjoyable one hour guided tour of a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Our guide Dick was friendly and informative. He explained the many unique features that Wright included - windows, concrete floor, heating system, horizontal elements ...

Outstanding Frank Lloyd Wright
May 2019
Set up next to The Oregon Garden in Silverton it is a must - see while visiting the quaint city of Silverton with its shops and restaurants. The house is beautifully restored in a quiet setting. Tours with docents with lots of information about the house and its history.

Oregon's only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house
Nov 2019
Knowledgeable docents guide you through the house, which hardly seems dated though more than 60 years old. The design gives visitors a peek into the architect's mind -- his preferences and eccentricities. The house was moved to the site and preserved after new owners in Wilsonville announced they wanted to tear it down. Ticket sales help pay for upkeep, but toss a few extra dollars in the collection to step up your help.
